Trivia

On the way to recover Pandora's Box in Detroit, Xander's (Vin Diesel's) team is driving a yellow van with the signs "Pork Chop Express" and "since 1985". "The Pork Chop Express" was the name of the truck driven by Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) in Big Trouble in Little China (1986). See more »

Goofs

Xander Cage claimed traffic lights was invented by BIG OIL, when traffic signals were originally created for trains in 1868. By J P Knight, a railway signaling engineer. It was Tennyson Torch who made this claim but as he made several conspiracy theory type claims this one was no doubt intended as humour not fact. See more »

Mindless VFX, dull acting and no screenplay and story
13 January 2017 | by aphale-mayureshSee all my reviews

Been cursing myself to have watched such mindless video game movie.

Deepika Padukone is completely misfit and she looks awkward for most of the screen time. Vin Diesel should stick to Fast and Furious franchise, 2002 XXX was much better. Rest of the star cast is assembled to just please the producers "Shanghai Movies".

There is no story, no screenplay, improper acting, it seems like director has wasted his most of the time in VFX labs than on actual story and screenplay.

Disgraceful start to 2017, if you want to watch mindless graphical action, better play video game. Disappointed to the core, save your time, money and if you still want to see then be ready to curse yourself...backed by big production house, critics and fake reviews will start floating soon appreciating the movie, beware.
